In 1966, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. told Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes what it would take for racial justice to be achieved in America. It wasn't about uniting blacks behind a civil rights movement. It wasn't about converting racists. It was about awakening 'White America,' particularly those folks inclined to be supportive of civil rights but not yet moved to get off the sideline.

“I think White America will determine how long it will be and which way we go in the future,” King said.

In the vernacular of today's rekindled and renewed civil rights movement, consider Marlene Gebhard one “woke” white person. Gebhard and her husband, Larry, are the grandparents of Tyler Gebhard, a 20-year-old man who was shot and killed by an off-duty St. Louis County police officer July 9 at a home in Lakeshire. Tyler Gebhard's father is black. His mother, Angela Johnson, is white.

The night of the former Affton football player's death, county police chief Jon Belmar was calling it a righteous shoot,:cool: saying the off-duty police officer had no choice but to shoot. The narrative was set. It was a case of Black Lives Matter vs. Blue Lives Matter. The story, according to police, was that Tyler got in a heated Facebook debate with the police officer's family over recent police shootings, came to the house, broke in and was shot when the officer feared for his family's safety.

http://www.newnation.org/Images/2016/TylerGebhard.jpgAn off-duty St. Louis county police officer fatally shot a man he argued with about Black Lives Matter on Facebook after the suspect broke into the cop’s home. Police said the alleged home intruder, Tyler Gebhard, grabbed a concrete planter and smashed it through the unidentified officer’s home window when the cop’s wife wouldn’t let him in. Gebhard’s uncle, Patrick Brogan, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the officer and his nephew met through a church connection, and had a fallout after arguing on Facebook over Black Lives Matter. Gebhard, a former football star at Affton High School, was biracial and supported Black Lives Matter’s goals but did not join the protests, the uncle told the newspaper.Gebhard’s family said the 20-year-old suffered from bi-polar disorder and would periodically stop taking his medication, worsening his condition. Police said Gebhard had made several threats to the officer’s family and other members of the community.
